“Nigeria’s Heartbreak: England Advances to Quarter-Finals with 4-2 Penalty Win”

England go through on penalties, winning 4-2 to seal their spot in the last eight. They rode their luck but they didn’t lose their resolve.

Nigerian players are in tears

Nnadozie went down at the goalline, hands covering her face. She looked broken and had to be helped on her feet by some of the England players. You’ve got to feel for the Super Falcons – they dominated the game, hit the bar thrice and had England on the back-foot all through the game. Once the pain settles, they can take great encouragement from their showing in this tournament.


:::Heartbreak for Nigeria, who dominated the game for large spells.

:::The Super Falcons looked deflated and most are in tears. They fought hard today and had they won, it would not have been labelled an upset because their entire tournament has been brave, fearless, technical and bold. This was a match of two titans and today luck was on England’s sides.
